I am very fortunate to have had the opportunity to purchase Patrick Saussois' Custom Lefty Favino. Jean Pierre built in 1986, custom inlaying his initials on the tailpiece and dedicating it to Patrick on the label.. Patrick passed away recently. He was the most famous Gadjo Lefty guitar player.
Instrumental in the promotion of many modern and famous players, as well as creating his own " Djazz" label. He was a dear friend.
The guitar will be posted on my Website next week.
This one is really special:

To put an end to years of misinformation, Arnaud Legrand writes an article about "Bortolo Busato"--who's name is finally clarified as well as his birth--not in Sicily--but in the very north of Italy.
